The build process doesn't move files within the repository, it only generates the built test suites found at:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/
All the locations of files within the repository are maintained by people (you really don't want an automated process modifying the repository).

At some point the build process will create subdirectories in the output folders and yes, it will use the spec links to assign the tests to them.
